BIG playback glitch
Before listening, I wondered how anyone could give any cylinder recording only one star based on sound quality- I mean, come on, it's a freakin' cylinder, right? Well, The problem with this one is the HUGE problem with playback early in the song, more so than overall sound quality. Enough of Murray's voice comes through to know it's him, at least. But talk about scratchy, yes. It is. But that big total interruption of sound, that's bad. Still, I'll give it a 2 based on it having MOST of the song audible.

It's a nice song, But the sound quality stinks! I've heard better sound quality in DuMont-TV programs. The sound quality is so bad it's impossible to listen to. That's a shame, Since most of the other Billy Murray records on IA tend to have pretty good sound quality considering how old they are.
